TANGENT: Re: emo.  I understand the emo label as it fits in modern day colloquia, but I don't quite understand it.  I mean, all music is emotional wither it expresses joy, sadness, anger, disillusionment, disgust, whatever.  

Either way, A lot of hate for Tidus in this thread.  That's fine and dandy since I can see how he wouldn't be the most likeable protagonist to everyone (he is a jock after all), but I liked him.  I liked his youthful exuberance.  It was with him and only with him that Yuna could let go and for a few fleeting moments just be a regular, fun-loving teenage girl and not this holy emissary with a herculean burden on her shoulders.  I loved the laughing scene.  I thought it was well acted.  


Actually, I agree with all of that. Funny you call Tidus a jock, because I would've labelled Waka the jock of the group. But none of them had that kind of jock arrogance that would put anything down that they didn't understand. (Well maybe except Waka and Riku)

Overall I preferred Tidus wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy more than Squall. Squall just reminds me of too many people I went to high school with who were way too self conscious about how terrible life was and how bad everything was for them and made sure everyone knew it.

Funnily enough, I had a friend kind of like Tidus as well, a bit of a jock but all around nice guy - without the annoying laugh. I've never actually pinpointed it til now, but that may be why I reacted the way I did to both characters.

I still don't get Fugazi being emo but it's not important.

See, everyone's saying "as long as it's tasteful, I don't mind".

That's the thing though.

How tasteful is advertising in magazines? On TV?
Once advertisers get a real foot in the door in gaming, games will be stopping every five minutes "for a word from our sponsor".

And who wants to buy their swords and magic equipment from Wal-Mart or The Gap?

Fuck that noise.

FFVIII sort of predated a lot of emo bands.

He didn't predate Emo. Emo began in the late 80's, fronted by DC bands Rites of Spring and Embrace. Most of the members of each band would later form Fugazi, which goes to show you how much eyeliner they must have worn.

(For those not familiar with Fugazi, that would mean none. The whole "emo aesthetic" came way after the creation of the Emo music genre).
Fugazi is emo?

I thought there had already been one but couldn't remember. I was waiting for more info on it. It's just nice to see that Atlus can survive and hasn't had to merge with another company to survive.

British heavy metal legends IRON MAIDEN kicked off their Somewhere Back In Time - World Tour '08 with a headlining performance Friday night (February 1) in front of nearly 100,000 fans at the Bandra-Kurla Complex in Mumbai, India. The group's setlist was as follows:

01. Intro - Churchill's Speech
02. Aces High
03. 2 Minutes to Midnight
04. Revelations
05. The Trooper
06. Wasted Years
07. The Number of the Beast
08. Run to the Hills
09. Rime of the Ancient Mariner
10. Powerslave
11. Heaven Can Wait
12. Can I Play With Madness?
13. Fear of the Dark
14. Iron Maiden
-----------------------------
15. Moonchild
16. The Clairvoyant
17. Hallowed Be Thy Name

IRON MAIDEN's Somewhere Back In Time - World Tour '08 trek revisits the band's incredible history by focusing almost entirely on the '80s in both choice of songs played and the stage set, which is based around the legendary Egyptian production of the 1984-85 Powerslave tour. This is arguably be the most elaborate and spectacular show the band have ever presented, and includes some key elements of their Somewhere In Time tour of 1986/7, such as the Cyborg Eddie.

NOTHING from Killers? :(

About 1/2 through Mr. B Gone by Clive Barker.

It's a fun read and even though it's classed as horror, I dunno if I would classify it as that.

It seems more in the vein of his fantasy books.

Here's a question:

Which of Barker's longer fantasyish works are worth picking up?

I'd read that alot of them seemed overlong and self indulgent.

(Though I have both Abarat books and enjoy those.)

I thought people would be happy about that news.

To anyone on the fence who has a Wii already, I have to ask you a question: Are you one of those frustrated by the low number of quality third party releases on the Wii? If the answer's yes and you can afford it, then just buy the damn game.


How about someone who's on the fence about buying a Wii.

Between this and the new Fatal Frame shots, I'm teetering.

Would this, Zack and Wiki and a new Fatal Frame make the Wii worth owning?
5006  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Level 5 announces new game: A... DS Graphic Adventure? on: January 30, 2008, 09:06:08 PM
Yeah, it's coming out right after I go back overseas. FUCK.

This is in my top 5 for this year too, god dammit.

I think it's more of a graphic adventure.

A mystery, I believe.

I gave up on Assassin's Creed.
The game is unplayable and the story sucks.

I thought I might finish Persona 3 before I went back overseas on Sunday, but it doesn't look like I will. I've been playing it on PS3, and I don't have a thingie to exchange saves from memory cards, so I guess I'll just start over when I get there. :(

Swedish death metal supergroup BLOODBATH has issued the following update:

"So the time has come for BLOODBATH to once again poison the scene with a contagious doze of über brutal death metal. An old acquaintance in this zombified bloodline has once again re-visited his old home. We can now announce that the vocalist on the new mini-CD is none other than Mikael Åkerfeldt courtesy of OPETH.

"Second deathster to join the elite is Mr. Per 'Sodomizer' Eriksson (ex-21 LUCIFERS, ex-GENOCRUSH FEROX). Sodomizer's brutal death metal songwriting approach as well as guitar shredding is a highly welcomed element in the legacy of BLOODBATH."

Classic track, but I prefer Pottery is Gay.


For some reason, I've been on an Anal Cunt kick all day.

At the moment - Art Fag

Edit - Technology Is Gay

Edit - I Snuck A Retard In A Sperm Bank

You get the idea.....
